    Yeah just hold shift and then hit "Check for updates" then select the file you downloaded. Bam you are done. It does the rest.

    Shift doesn't do anything. I think it's the option key

    The file is grayed out when I choose check for updates in the iphone summary tab. If I unzip the file and browse my way through the resulting folder all of those are grayed out, too.

    It should not be a zip file. You have to rename it to .ipsw. That's what's creating your issue.

    That did the trick, thanks. How long did the install take?

    Actually took a while. On top of that I'm using most of my 16 gig. Shockingly the apps took a while to load on the phone. Considering how small most of them are.

    Does not go. Returns Error 5, leaves the phone in unusual state. Have to restore to 1.1.7 and restore data from backup. Have tried twice. Same results.

    Sorry don't know what to tell you. I've installed on two iPhones and both times it has worked flawlessly. If your having issues just wait it out until it updates it via iTunes. Or maybe someone else can pin point your issue.

    iTunes auto update date keeps slipping. Yesterday it went from 11 to 16 and today it went to 17. Have to keep checking manually.

    I'm wanting to give this a try but am worried I might have a similar problem how did you do the backup? Is there something in itunes other than hiting the synch button that will backup your data?

    Thanks

    This firmware is pre-loaded on the 3g. I was going to hold off just to see it on the new phone tomorrow but I couldn't wait any longer.

    Not to worry. iTunes is a very robust application; all our apps should be so strong. It knows when it is broken and it generally knows how to fix itself. Simply follow the prompts. The only issue is the time required to do it. Restoring the firmware is a matter of minutes but restoring all the data may take tens of minutes.

    No. I have 7.6.2. However, "check for updates" reports that it is the current version.

    The update to iTunes will fix everyone's issues of not being able to update the phones firmware. Like I said it is a must. Have fun! Be sure to check out the iTunes remote app... very cool!
